“Good food, over priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Nice in-and out service. Small menu so it makes deciding nice. I did pay, however, near $20 for a lobster roll and a bag of chips. I have never paid that at bars and small joints along the east coast...you're kind of paying for the "fancy" fish shop but nevertheless it's good.

“A taste of Maine in Maryland !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Small cute place for a quick lobster roll or crab roll. Convenient for easy and good lunch.
Nice decor with buoys from Maine.

“small shop huge flavor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Following the recommendation of a local shopkeep, went to Lukes with my 3 friends...needless to say, we were delighted with our food. The lobsta roll and Shrimp and corn chowder....wonderful. My friends also tried the crab roll and were suitably impressed. The 2 young men who waited on us were pleasnt efficient and just lovely. Don't let the simple facade and small size stop you from enjoying a verrrry good meal.

“No time for a vacation? Come inside!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

Just step inside Luke's and you'll feel miles away, on a small island, perhaps in Maine or Massachusetts. Very casual atmosphere - you line up to order. Food is fantastic but a bit pricey, especially given the casual vibe. That said, good seafood is not cheap these days. Enjoy sitting at the bar and eating as well.

“Very, very good lobster rolls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

These are fantastic lobster rolls. Hard to turn down the buttery and messy goodness, and I appreciate the interesting beer and soda choices. If a little more lobster came in each roll, I would have given them a perfect score. Still though, you should go.

Also, hot apple cider in the winter is a great.
